Convert motorbike driving license??

Post by NC30 » Tue, 04 Nov 2008 6:01 pm

Hello,
hopefully somebody can help me, my first entry ever into Singapore was june 2007, since have been travelling around Asia, and in and out Singapore but back for a while now, still have my place to stay,
is it still possible to convert my license, and do i have 12 months time to convert from which date?? First entry? Or first date with bike on the road??
I have a full Belgium, and International License for bikes (and Car) and been riding bikes for 20 years.
I want to buy a bike now here and wonder if its possible.
Thanks, and best regards.

Have your tried using the Search Function at the upper left side of this page? Works wonders and the topic has been discussed numerous times.

Technically, you are well beyond the one year limit for license conversion, since the date is computed from first entry or at least the issuance of your EP.

However, I am aware of an individual who did plead special circumstances of being out of the country for an extended period of time (he really was), and was permitted to do the conversion.

You'll never know until you ask. I'd head down to either Ubi police station or better yet, the police office at BBDC with some documentation that shows you out a lot. Tell them about the difficulty in scheduling the written exam because of the long waiting period, and your need to travel.
